Teacher's Comments from Mrs. Sloat:
My Students: Why? Why? Why? Imagine a room full of eager four-year-olds ready to learn. They are constantly asking, "Why?" We need materials for our science center, so the little ones can begin to find answers by investigating.
My pre-kindergarten students come into the classroom ready to take on the world. Many of my students come from low income families and have little at home. I would like to provide them with materials that are not seen in their homes. I think that observing and working hands-on provide so many life skills that these children would otherwise not see.
My Project: If our project is funded it would help my students by getting them excited to learn about science. They would be able to investigate up close the life cycle of ladybugs in the ladybug land. They would be able to mix colors with the test tubes and the color paddles. I want to inspire all areas of the science field by providing activities that would get my students asking questions and acquiring more information in the areas of science.
This project is so important to me because I want my students to be well rounded. I want my students to work with technology along with the basics. I think hands-on working is one of the best ways to learn in early childhood. I love to see the sparkle in my students' eyes when something is built from their own hands.
Donations of ANY size can make a BIG difference!
